Post remember.

Us deixo una triella de cançons que vaig fer ja carda 20 anys amb l’Impulse Tracker, un programa per fer musiquetes a partir de samples ronyosos trets de CD’s de revistes de videojocs.

En tinc potser un centenar de cançons. Era una època en què vaig estar hiper viciat a crear cançonetes de l’estil maquinero (happy màquina en deia jo). Bàsicament eren remixos que em venien al cap i les feia amb més o menys gràcia. La d’hores que m’hi vaig passar en mode productor musical friqui!

Qüestionaris a JetPunk

He anat aprofitant temps lliure per anar fent aquests qüestionaris a JetPunk, a veure què us semblen:

JetPunk és un web de quizzes (qüestionaris), on qualsevol pot crear-ne de nous. N’hi ha de tota mena: esports, cultura general, història… però els que em fan més gràcia ara mateix són els de geografia. Això sí, la majoria són en anglès.

A l’hora de jugar-hi utilitza el sistema d’anar pujant nivells, cosa que fa que sigui un vici que ni us explico. Molt recomanable. Jo vaig pel nivell 57, no fa falta dir la d’hores que m’hi he passat!

Un article del 2011 deia que passaria això durant el 2014

Això és tal com ho vaig apuntar:

23 incredible new technologies you’ll see by 2021


A 1 Terabyte SD Memory Card probably seems like an impossibly unnecessary technological investment. Many computers still don?t come with that much memory, much less SD memory cards that fit in your digital camera. Yet thanks to Moore?s Law we can expect that the 1TB SD card will become commonplace in 2014, and increasingly necessary given the much larger swaths of data and information that we?re constantly exchanging every day (thanks to technologies like memristors and our increasing ever-connectedness). The only disruptive factor here could be the rise of cloud-computing, but as data and transfer speeds continue to rise, it?s inevitable that we?ll need a physical place to store our digital stuff.

The first around-the-world flight by a solar-powered plane will be accomplished by now, bringing truly clean energy to air transportation for the first time. Consumer models are still far down the road, but you don?t need to let your imagination wander too far to figure out that this is definitely a game-changer. Consider this: it took humans quite a few milennia to figure out how to fly; and only a fraction of that time to do it with solar power.

The world?s most advanced polar icebreaker is currently being developed as a part of the EU?s scientific development goals and is scheduled to launch in 2014. As global average temperatures continue to climb, an understanding and diligence to the polar regions will be essential to monitoring the rapidly changing climates?and this icebreaker will be up to the task.

$100 personal DNA sequencing is what?s being promised by a company called BioNanomatrix, which the company founder Han Cao has made possible through his invention of the ?nanofluidic chip.? What this means: by being able to cheaply sequence your individual genome, a doctor could biopsy a tumor, sequence the DNA, and use that information to determine a prognosis and prescribe treatment for less than the cost of a modern-day x-ray. And by specifically inspecting the cancer?s DNA, treatment can be applied with far more specific?and effective?accuracy.

He estat buscant per sobre i sembla que anaven prou encaminats, però no del tot.
Les SD Card d’1TB existeixen, però valen uns 700?
El Solar Impulse ha re-programat la volta al món sense combustible fòssil pel març del 2015.
El projecte del trencagel polar va ser suspès.
La seqüenciació de l’ADN és possible, però al web no hi diuen res del preu.

He rebut un mail del passat!

Concretament de l’octubre del 2011, i és un mail meu de fa poc més d’un any dirigit al jo del futur, és a dir, el d’ara.

He agafat per costum crear futurs esdeveniments al meu calendari de Google on hi explico el que es diu que passarà per aquella data. El calendari es diu futurologia i el podeu veure aquí, és public:

I si el voleu posar al vostre propi calendari, afegiu aquesta adreça en format ical:

Així per exemple, el 2061 (si encara visc) rebré un correu del 2013 que m’informarà del que deien que passaria l’any 2060. I segons la BBC diuen que el 2060 s’haurà creat una base humana a Mart.

Trobo que és un exercici força interessant, el saber el que pensaven que passaria la gent de fa 50 anys en la data actual i comprovar el grau d’aproximació que en van fer.

El mail que he rebut del passat és aquest:

23 incredible new technologies you’ll see by 2021


Ultrabooks ? The last two years have been all about the tablet. Laptops, with their ?untouchable? screens, have yet to match any tablet?s featherweight portability and zippy response times. However, by next year, ultraportable notebooks?Ultrabooks?will finally be available for under $1000, bringing a complete computing experience into areas of life which, until now, have only been partially filled by smaller technologies such as tablets and smartphones. They weigh around three pounds, measure less than an inch thick, and the hard drives are flash-based, which means they?ll have no moving parts, delivering zippy-quick startups and load times.

The Mars Science Laboratory ? By August 2012, the next mission to Mars will reach the Martian surface with a new rover named Curiosity focusing on whether Mars could ever have supported life, and whether it might be able to in the future. Curiosity will be more than 5 times larger than the previous Mars rover, and the mission will cost around $2.3 billion ? or just about one and a half New Yankee Stadiums.

The paralyzed will walk. But, perhaps not in the way that you?d imagine. Using a machine-brain interface, researchers are making it possible for otherwise paralyzed humans to control neuroprostheses?essentially mechanical limbs that respond to human thought?allowing them to walk and regain bodily control. The same systems are also being developed for the military, which one can only assume means this project won?t flounder due to a lack of funding.

Què us sembla? No anaven gaire errats fa 1 any. La Curiosity és a Mart, els ultrabooks existeixen a menys de 1000$ i hi ha màquines per caminar, encara que no a l’abast de tothom.
